    Given the recent wallop that Storm Jason just dropped on the east coast (NYC metro area got about 30"), just wondering if any X owners can comment on the X's ability to drive in the snow, plow through snow banks without shoveling/digging out, etc. I'd imagine with the increased height, ground clearance, and tire/wheel size, it should be better than the S.

    Might be better to post in the MX forums if you want advice from one owners (or for a Mod to move this thread for you). Most here have MS.

    I did, haven't gotten any responses yet. Now there are duplicates since I posted in both.

    considering NYC had a travel ban until they cleared the main roads, owners may not have been able to try. Also the X doesn't have a winter tire package as of yet, so owners may not venture out into the snow.
